Dermatology Team

Dr Meng Siak BVMS, MANZCVS (Canine Medicine), FANZCVS (Veterinary Dermatology)

Meng graduated from Murdoch Veterinary School in 2006. He spent one year in private practice before returning to Perth to pursue his dream of becoming a veterinary dermatologist. From 2008 to 2014, Meng worked in two busy referral dermatology clinics, initially as an intern, then resident in veterinary dermatology. In 2014, he passed examinations to become a specialist veterinary dermatologist with the Australian and New Zealand College of Veterinary Scientists (ANZCVS).

In the WAVES dermatology clinic, Meng acts as a consultant for your pets’ skin and ear diseases and performs diagnostic procedures including allergy testing, video-otoscopy examinations and flushes, and collection of skin and ear biopsies. Meng has special interests in antibiotic resistant bacterial skin and ear infections including methicillin resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP)-the dog equivalent of MRSA in people. He published the first paper on MRSP infections affecting dogs in Australia and continues to update himself on new treatment options. Other interests include management of allergic and immune mediated skin diseases.

Outside work, Meng is a keen advocate for continued education and is the Oceania/Asia representative for Global Veterinary Dermatology Education Group (GVDEG), a non-profit charitable organisation that offers continued education in underserved countries. Meng and his Wife (also a veterinarian) enjoys exploring the world together and spending time with their two cats (Kylie, a tortoiseshell and Remy, a Burmese). Meng is a sports fanatic and supports Spurs (COYS!) and Dockers (Go Freo!).
